Scented Sachet

 

A scented sachet makes a heartfelt gift.

Sew
simple, in no time at all you can make a basket full of them for valentine giveaways.

 

Supplies Needed:

  • Embroidery design - Mosaic Heart.

  • 1/4 yard of solid color fabric

  • 1/4 yard of lace fabric

  • 1/4 yard of tulle or bridal netting

  • A cup of scented potpourri

  • A yard of narrow ribbon

 

 

Instructions:

Sew out the embroidery design on the solid fabric.

Cut out the embroidery design, leaving about 1/4" to 3/8" around the perimeter of the design.  This will be your seam allowance.


 

Use the cut-out design as a pattern piece to cut out the lace and net pieces.

 

 

Stack the pieces:  First the embroidered fabric (right side up), then the lace piece, then the net on the top. 

Stitch the pieces together along the very edge of the embroidery leaving a 2" to 3" opening for turning and stuffing.

 

 

Carefully turn the heart right side out.  Be gentle and patient.  The embroidered fabric is much stiffer than the net and lace.  I scrunched the embroidered side to make it pliable enough to turn.

 
 

 

 

Fill the heart with scented potpourri and stitch the opening together to close.

 
 

 

 

Wrap with a ribbon bow to dress it up.
